Family Art Fun Trails

Pick up a free family trail from the Learning Centre and set off to explore the Museum through puzzles, drawing and observation games.

Trails are suitable for children aged 7–12.

Don’t forget to collect a pencil when you pick up your Trail.

Choose from:

  • Pick up a Glorious Gardens trail to be led around the Museum by our very own ceramic gardener and design your own garden.
  • The Undiscovered Museum
    Explore the V&A with the new Undiscovered Museum Family Trail. Follow the images and discover the museum. As you explore, you could take your own photographs and then create a trail at home. This resource was created by James Rigler, Ceramics Resident at the V&A. Find out more about the residency programme here. (Please note photography is not permitted in some spaces).

A gift in your will

You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
